The guy with the fancy looking camera seen in Madrona last Friday was none other than director Cameron Crowe, on hand to shoot a forthcoming documentary on Pearl Jam.
A local employee spotted the film crew and reported to us that Crowe confirmed he was there to shoot a film on the band.
Our tipster says that the band once had an office on 34th behind where June is located, roughly across the street from the Hi Spot.
The movie is due to come out in 2011, the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam’s founding, according to IMDB.com.
Our network partners over at Capitol Hill Seattle also saw the film crew on Saturday. From what we hear, it sounds like there might be more footage to be shot, so keep an eye out for Crowe and his camera.
So glad to hear a documentary is coming out…can’t wait to see it!
